I Love You the Purplestby Barbara Joosse
Synopses & Reviews
Each morning as the sun brightens the West African sky, mother and child prepare to start their day. They spend it bound together, the child riding on the mothers back watching their world go past. Pounding millet, drawing water from the well, visiting friends, shopping at the outdoor market—days are shared in perfect step with one another. And even when the child grows big enough to go off and explore their world, the everlasting embrace endures.
Illustrated with E.B. Lewiss stunning watercolors that bring to life the land and people of Mali, Gabrielle Emanuels tender story celebrates the universal bond between mother and child.
Two boys discover that their mother loves them equally but in different ways.
Early in the evening two young brothers and their mama finish supper in the sturdy red cabin and set out to fish. While digging for worms, rowing the boat and pulling in fish, each brother asks his mama which one is the best at each task and, as they are being tucked into bed, which one she loves the best.
Barbara Joosse's heartwarming text is beautifully complimented by Mary Whyte's engaging watercolor illustrations. Readers will delight in the tender message that every child holds a special place in a parent's heart.
